I previously worked as a news and sports photographer. Recently I have been enjoying wildlife photography. My approach toward bird photos is similar to sports photography. I attempt to capture mostly action and hopefully a unique perspective.
As the sun was going down yesterday evening there was just this one great egret still fishing in the salt marsh. We saw the egret catch only a few tiny minnows…so it’s possible he might have gone to bed with only a snack for his supper!
Sicuramente non ha avuto problemi di digestione 🙂
Splendidi scatti, sei fortissimo Phil!!
Buon Anno Nuovo!! Pat
Grazie per le gentili parole e felice anno nuovo a voi! 😀
A snack is better than nothing! Happy 2014! Looking forward to more great adventures and images from the swamp.
Thanks so much Gunta and best to you in 2014!
Thanks much for checking these out!
What a beautiful bird. Great shots & Happy 2014! Thanks!
Thank you very much I’m happy you liked the egret! Happy 2014!
Fabulous shots, Phil. Just arrived back home from our drive back from New Jersey. A snack will have to suffice for us too, before we fall into bed. 🙂 Happy New Year to you and yours.
Thanks much Sylvia, hope you enjoyed your snack and have a great start to 2014! 😀
The reflection is so clear! What a great shot Phil!
I’m very happy you liked these, thanks!
He just went for the tapas. 🙂
Oh yes, tapas are definitely the trend out in the marsh for the new year! 😀
Absolutely gorgeous photos, Phil!
Thanks a million, glad you enjoyed these egret shots!
You’re welcome. Especially happy to see your recent retrospective peek at dear Spoonie. Happy New Year to you and yours.
I’m happy to hear you enjoyed the look back at 2013 and you know I had to include some Spoonies! I really could have done all 12 photos using the Spoonies and been perfectly happy! 🙂
Hi Alyce & Phil,
Sharon and I would like to thank you both for all the great shots from your second home ha! ha! they were worth much more than a thousand words. We enjoy them much more now that we don’t make it to the park as often as we would like. We want to wish you a HAPPY NEW YEAR! May all your shots be keepers.
Thanks so much for the kind words Phil and I really appreciate your continued interest and support of my photos.
Best to you both in 2014!
Excellent shots, with those reflections and the ripples of light on the egret. Thanks, and Happy 2014!
I really appreciate you looking and commenting Lee, thanks very much and hope your 2014 is excellent!
Such beautiful light and the reflections are stunning!
I am thrilled you enjoyed these Maggie, thanks!
Frohes neues Jahr lieber Phil ♥ ♥ Mathilda
★ Danke Mathilda, Happy New Year auf Sie! ★
Light dinners are healthier any way 😉 Happy 2014, Phil 🙂
This bird looks quite fit so I’m sure his eating plan is working well for him.
Best to you in 2014 Paula!
Fantastic shots with great reflections. I wish you all the best for 2014, Phil.
I appreciate that very much thank you and hope you have a wonderful 2014!
Beautiful! This is a very hard shot to get and you did it wonderfully.
Well I truly appreciate our very kind words about theses egret photos, thanks!
Happy 2014 to you, Phil! I should be back to blogging soon 🙂
Thanks a bunch Amy and best wishes for a happy 2014! 🙂
Your photographs speak volumes! These are lovely — and I hope he got enough to eat. 🙂
I really appreciate your interest and kind comments about the photos!
I hope he got enough too, but in any case he will likely be back at it tomorrow!
